Uno degli archivi più saccheggiati, depauperati, raschiati ergo pubblicati della storia. Ma sembra non essere finita. Nella prossima primavera verranno ristampati in versione deluxe tutti gli album di studio della seminale formazione britannica ed incluso molto materiale inedito come rivela Robert Plant a BBC 6 Music: “I found some quarter-inch spools recently and there’s some very, very interesting bits and pieces that probably will turn up [soon]. Hidden gems – now that should be the name of [our] band, really. I had a meeting with Jimmy. We baked them up and listened to them. I’m desperately trying to [use] this one track – or the two tracks – [with] John Paul Jones singing lead. And so far [Jones is] up to giving me two cars and a greenhouse [to leave] them [off] the album. Oh, John, wherever you are, with your opera, you can’t wait to hear yourself singing all over the world! ‘La la la la la la la…'”. Preludio ad una reunion da consumarsi nel 2014? “The 67-year-old is preparing an adaptation of August Strindberg’s 1908 play The Ghost Sonata (Spöksonaten)…”. Vedremo… o anche no.
